Chocolate Overload

Okay... I have something to admit... Now listen er read closely... What I'm about to type is going to shock most of you... I'm one of the few that is not a Chocoholic... Please do not stop reading... I know I just admitted something that most of you can not even imagine... However, think of how hard that was to admit to a world of Chocolate loving people....

In my defence I love DARK Chocolate it is just so yummy... So when the mood to eat chocolate hits it hits BIG... However, this evening was not about the mood to eat chocolate... This was a result of what happens when I get upset with DH.... Yep, he did not bring home the right thermometer even though he was informed...

"This *shows picture on website* is what I am looking for.... Here is where you can get it... This *shows website and name* is the only one I want... Do not bring anything but it home"

What I got was three Wii games, three milkshakes, two toys for the little girl across the street birthday and a thermometer that is similar to the one I wanted... He must have known he was wrong because this is what I got as an answer...

"I have the receipt so we can take it back... I made sure I could take it back just in case you did not want it..." *looks at me hoping this will save his hide*

What's a girl to do... I know he means well but come on... Thus, I went to cleaning and then decided to whip up some chocolate muffins with dark chocolate chips and some dark chocolate chip shavings on top... The kitchen smells of mouthwatering heavenly sweet yummy delicious chocolate... It was so over whelming I almost made a chocolate banana bread... However, no bananas and that would require more time away from the kiddos...

Wee Man seems to be getting worst so it could be a long night.... BAH

Here is the recipe for those oh so yummy Muffins...


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I use the dark chocolate chips)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
4 tablespoons white sugar (optional... or I use raw sugar or shaved chips on top)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

In medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In large bowl stir in milk, egg, oil and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients into large bowl; beat well. Add chocolate chips and walnuts, stir well.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle muffins with sugar or raw sugar. (or wait until they come out and then shave chips on top.)

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Then sit back and enjoy...
